How to Find Anyone's Email Address on LinkedIn




Are you trying to reach out to someone on LinkedIn, but can't seem to find their email address? Whether you're trying to connect with a potential business partner, client, or job candidate, it's important to have a way to contact them directly. In this post, we'll explore a few strategies you can use to uncover anyone's email address on LinkedIn.


Check their LinkedIn profile

The first place to look is the person's LinkedIn profile. Some users choose to display their email address directly on their profile, either in the contact info section or in their bio. If you see an email address listed, you can try reaching out to them using that address. Keep in mind that not all users will have their email address visible on their profile, so this may not always be an option.



Use LinkedIn's built-in messaging feature

If the person's email address is not listed on their profile, you can try reaching out to them through LinkedIn's built-in messaging feature. To do this, click on the "Message" button on their profile and send them a message introducing yourself and explaining why you want to get in touch. If they respond, you can ask if they would be willing to share their email address with you.

Keep in mind that not everyone checks their LinkedIn messages regularly, so it may take some time for them to respond. Be patient and consider following up with a reminder message if you don't hear back after a few days.



Use a LinkedIn tool or plugin

There are also a number of tools and plugins available that can help you find someone's email address on LinkedIn. 

Some options include:

  • Find hard-to-find email addresses: Some people may not have their email addresses listed on their LinkedIn profile or company website, making it more difficult to find their contact information. Email-finding tools can help you find these hard-to-find email addresses by using advanced search and scraping techniques.     
  • Find multiple email addresses: Many email-finding tools allow you to find multiple email addresses for a single person, including personal and work email addresses. This can be especially useful if you're trying to reach someone for business purposes and want to make sure you have all of their relevant contact information.



Search for the person's email address online

If you cannot find the person's email address through any of the above methods, you can try searching for it online. Try searching for the person's name and the name of their company, as well as any other relevant information you have about them (e.g. their job title, location, etc.). You may be able to find their email address on their company's website, or on a public directory or database.

You can also try using a search operator to narrow down your results. For example, you could search for "John Smith" to find John Smith's email address on the company website.


Ask for an introduction

If you cannot find the person's email address through any of the above methods, you may want to consider asking for an introduction. Reach out to a mutual connection and ask if they would be willing to introduce you to the person you are trying to contact. This can be a more personal and effective way to get in touch with someone, as you will have a mutual connection to vouch for you.



If you're trying to find someone's email address on LinkedIn, there are a few strategies you can try. First, check their LinkedIn profile to see if their email address is listed. If it's not, you can try reaching out through LinkedIn's built-in messaging feature or using a LinkedIn tool or plugin like Kendo, Hunter, ContactOut, or other available tools. You can also try searching for the person's email address online or asking for an introduction through a mutual connection. Keep in mind that not all of these strategies will work in every case, so it may take some trial and error to find the right approach.
